General Note: Sam Feinstein is a retrospective, limited edition art book that captures the life work of artist Sam Feinstein. This book offers a glimpse into the art, life, philosophy and teachings of a man who painted for over seventy years, the last forty in self-chosen obscurity while he explored the infinite potential of the visual language and continually refined color-forms in his dynamically expressive compositions. This collectible edition includes a DVD of the documentary Hans Hofmann, filmed in 1950 by Sam Feinstein. This is the film's first public release. Premiered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1999, this documentary about the artist Hans Hofmann was filmed, edited and produced by Sam Feinstein, with narration co-written by Hofmann. The twenty-eight-minute black-and-white 1950 film focuses on Hofmann's philosophy and principles of art, and includes a sequence of Hofmann painting The Window, now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum. Hofmann called Feinstein's documentary a classic, a great film about my scholarly and artistic activity and wrote: I am totally in sympathy with the entire film.--publisher.
